What does Pregnancy Massage consist of?

Pregnancy Massage is a combination of Swedish Massage techniques combined with Shiatsu, Lymphatic Drainage, and Deep Tissue Massage, but is also dependent on the needs of the individual client.

What will a session involve?

The session will involve a client consultation, massage and some light stretching. Additionally, these sessions may also include breathing and visualisation work, exercise tips and advice and an end of session review.  It may well be that you desire just a relaxing treatment with none of the above. Mother and Bump Massage aim to meet all your needs and this will be discussed with your Therapist before we begin, so you get the best results from your treatment.

What equipment do Mother and Bump Massage supply for a home based treatment?

You do not need to supply anything. Mother and Bump Massage supply all equipment for treatments which include:

  Massage Table

  Massage Wax

  Fresh & Clean Towels


  Pillows & bolsters

  Health forms








What do I need to provide for you?

All that we request is that you have a room large enough for set up, so our therapist may work freely around the treatment table. We also request that your pets are out of the way for the duration of your massage treatment.  

We also require that you have free off street parking for our therapist's easy access and health and safety.

How will I be positioned?

The current stage of pregnancy determines the positioning for the massage.  Most 1st Trimester Clients are still able to lay face down on the Massage table but will be adapted to side lying if preferred (due to sore breasts).  

Clients in the 2nd Trimester are positioned normally in a side lying position with Pillows and Bolsters to support your changing shape; you can also lay in the semi-reclined position if preferred and if suitable for your body.

3rd Trimester Clients are placed in the side lying position as this is the most comfortable and safe position. Or you can even be positioned semi-reclined.  This again is dependent on the client's needs.

What if I am under specialist care?

Mother and Bump Massage will provide you with a Health Consultation Form which will be completed prior to your appointment. We will give you the opportunity to tell us of any health issues that you may have. In most cases, we can still treat you, as long as we have permission by your specialist or GP.

What type of products do you use?

We use massage wax for consistency and high quality.  The product is made with natural ingredients that leave the skin nourished and soft to touch.  The unscented wax includes Shea butter which adds a velvety texture for a luxurious feel.
